I'd like to go just a little afield for my first actual post. As many of you know, David LeVan is trying to win approval to develop the Eisenhower Hotel and Conference Center, located just south of the Gettysburg National Battlefield boundary, into a casino. I would like to extend my support and assistance to all who oppose this incursion into such a historically sensitive area. Eric J. Wittenburg, an attorney and Civil War author who blogs on "Rantings of a Civil War Historian" recently gave several good reasons for opposing the casino in an interview for the Civil War Preservation Trust. You can see the interview here. I urge everyone to add their voices in opposing this threat to one of our greatest national treasures.
